CMP – Client Money Protection

CMP – Client Money Protection – How important is it?

Baroness Hayter is pushing the Government as to whether it will make CMP insurance mandatory for all lettings agents.

Hayter, who led a State-backed review into the prospects of such a scheme at the end of last year, issued a written parliamentary question asking about government action.

Her question, suggesting that ministers are dragging their heels, was answered this week by Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Communities and Local Government.

He said: “The Government encourages letting and management agents to join Client Money Protection schemes and encourages landlords and tenants to choose agents with Client Money Protection via the SafeAgent kitemark.”

He also cited Baroness Hayter’s own work, adding that the report is still being reviewed by ministers and would be responded to “in due course”.

    The property was let to the other viewer on the day, they acted quickly and had secured it during the viewing, all applicants are informed it sadly is a first comer first served basis. This is a very fast moving market and sadly sometimes this happens.

    What a fabulous letting agent Stuarts are. Their attention to detail in fantastic. Everything you need to know is clearly explained on the website. Their customer service is second to none and they are always happy to answer any queries a potential tenant may have. I would highly recommend using this letting agent.

    I have been with the company with over 7 years. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is after a secure and well looked after rental. Claire, Margaret and Colin are not only helpful but genuinely lovely people. Anytime I have a request they sort things out for me straight away. I feel safe and trusted in the properly I live in and if I would ever have to move, i'd definitely stick with Stuarts to find me a new home.
